Whitney Quanita Booysen

Whitney Quanita Booysen aka Sindiswa Speelman aka Lerato Khumalo is a trans identified person from Lutzville in the Western Cape of South Africa. She’s been involved in the LGBTIQA++ movement since 2011 when she started to work at Gender DynamiX as the Outreach Coordinator. She gave birth to the Trans Wellness Project after losing her job at Gender DynamiX when it was clear to her that there is a big need for an organisation working on transgender and gender diverse issues in the rural and remote areas of South Africa. Her experience as a rural transgender female who experience lots of backlog and discrimination made her aware of the fact that trans and gender diverse people are left out of programming and their voices are not heard because of the distance to travel to those areas. Whitney finished her studies in Life and Business Coaching through SACAP, N6 Public Management through West Coast College and are busy with a course to obtain a diploma in Social Studies and Counselling through International Foundation for the Advancement of Reflective Learning and Teaching (ARLT). Whitney’s motto in life is: “Everything starts with the possibility to dream.”
